I chose to practice in a both estate planning because I enjoy assisting people making important decisions that will allow them to take care of, and share part of themselves, with loved ones. I enjoy the reflection and completion of leaving a legacy behind. I also chose to combine that practice with litigation because in some cases litigation is the only way to resolve disputes in my clients' best interests.
I think it is very important for clients to be fully informed of the legal issues to enable them to make the best decisions.
I prefer to prepare documents on behalf of my clients, primarily because I think it is in the best interests of my clients.
I am willing to answer questions and consult with clients, but prefer to act as a client's representative, primarily because I think it is in the best interests of my clients.

I was born in Humble, Texas and raised most of my life in Colwich, Kansas, a small town outside of Wichita. I earned my B.S. by attending night school while I worked through the day as a paralegal. I have worked in every position in a law firm and identify with clients and their needs. I, myself, have been involved in issues that require legal representation, including suffering property damage from Hurricane Wilma. Drawing from my personal and professional experience, I launched www.floridahurricanedisasterrecovery.com to provide an online legal resource to others similarly situated.
I have strong legal research and writing skills, and advocate vigorously for clients' rights in litigation matters. My litigation experience assists me in representing my client's best interests in transactional matters.
